Forum: audio Subject: Problem with Virgil's AENEID

We have tried everything, and the problem seems to only be with this title. When we try to listen to what we thought was the text of Virgil's Aeneid, all we get is some strange sound...no voice is heard at all.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Thanks!

Everything? Wow! I like a man - or woman, of course - who tries everything in order to solve a terrible problem. Yes, I do!

E-Librarian continued :

Well ....... except for the voice of the spheres, and all that. But that's another story.

Yes. I have. It's you. You downloaded the material from the wrong part of the 'audio' site. You see, this is 'Open Source Audio', which deals with music. In fact, the *types* of music that the album is associated with is even given on the page - in this case, ie 'Spacemusic; Ambient; Dream; Drones; Soundscape; Meditative Electronic'. For some reason you obviously thought you were in the 'Audio Books & Poetry' part of Archive.org. You weren't.

PS
Phrozenlight - an excellent album, as usual. Keep up the good work.

Ha. You're trying to make this person out to be an idiot, when you are answering posts that are , what, six months old. This has already been dealt with and explained, dork. You're the idiot. Back to the drawing board, the prototype is a failure.

ko8 Ha'd:
"Ha."

Yes. I thought it was funny too. Thanks for the support.

ko8 said the obvious:
"You're trying to make this person out to be an idiot"

Absolutely. Successfully, I might add.

ko8 scratched its head, and said:

Hmm. Let's see. February ....... October ....... naahh! It's more like 8, mate. Honestly; the state of numeracy today. It's a sin. I hear that eating fish makes you more intelligent. Perhaps you should live by the sea. Easy access to fish, y'see.

I think you should contribute to more 8-month-old threads. or is it 6? Heh!

Is this a text file or an audio file?
Could you post a link?

This is the page where all of the links are for this title:
http://www.archive.org/details/Phrozenlight_-_Virgils_Aeneid

Whether you click on one of the links for streaming audio or downloading, all we can get is that strange noise.

'That strange noise' ... is it possible what you are hearing is 'electronic music'?

I think this is a series of electronic music compositions inspired by the Aeneid... rather than an 'audiobook' type recording of the text of Virgil's epic poem.

Too bad, I'd love to have a copy of the Aeneid (the poem).

The first part of this sounds to me like wind... is that what you are hearing?

As music, it's not entirely bad, but it would disappoint me if I were hoping to download Virgil's poem and got this 'strange noise', which description is not an unfair description of the first part at least of Phrozenlight's composition.

Phrozenlight, I hope I gave no offense with my explanation and review of your music.

If I did it was not intended, and I apologise. I was only trying to help 'E-Librarian'. I think he may not have actually had trouble with the download. I had no trouble streaming or downloading the file, and personally would not call it 'noise', but as I said, that would not be an unfair description.

Perhaps you could amend your item description to better describe the item, and to clarify that this is a musical piece rather than a poetic reading? I believe that the uploader is able to edit the description through the 'edit item' link.

Do you feel it entirely appropriate to include a Paypal link within the item? I feel that it would be better to include a link to your website, and to perform your business there rather than here in the library.

Again, sorry if I have offended you, that was not my intent.
